Help me name this external

Post by monte » Thu Mar 15, 2012 9:03 pm

Hi

I'm writing an external that presents action sheets. These are the modal lists of buttons. On iPad they are popovers. I was going to call it mergActionSheet but it's a bit long for my taste and I've now decided to add the little cut copy paste style popover. Any ideas what it should be called? mergPick?

Cheers

Thats a bit masculine, my externals are all girls. Maybe Gertrude? :-)

Way too "old school" 8)

What about "Sandy"? Sounds fresh and modern, doesn't it?

:D :D :D

hmm, it's a good idea Klaus but I'm thinking of something a little more descriptive ;-)

I tell you what, I'll put 3 months access to mergExt updates up for grabs for whoever comes up with a name I like. It's got to have the merg prefix and describe the picking of choices from an action sheet or the cut|copy|paste style popover menu as seen in a text field.

Bonus points for including function names for presenting the action sheet or menu.

Cheers

Monte

Bernd..

Monte mentioned that his externals are all girls, so if the name of the external was to have an antipodean feel to it then surely it would have to be 'mergSheila'

I have a utility that drops a field, button or menu based upon a list of columns from a selected table in a mySQL database. I call it fieldDropper. Maybe you could call this mergDropper.
